Indisposable: Structures of Support After the ADA | Chapter 5: Melancholy as Medium

June 9, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

We are pleased to announce the next online chapter of Indisposable: Structures of Support After the ADA, co-curated by Jessica Cooley (UW-Madison, Art History, Ph.D. Candidate) and Ann M. Fox on Wednesday, June 9th from 6:00 to 7:15 pm EDT/5:00–6:15 pm CDT.

Chapter 5 | Melancholy as Medium was conceived by Professor Jill H. Casid (UW-Madison, Professor of Visual Studies) and debuts a screening of their short film, Untitled (Melancholy as Medium).

What to do with the ways we’re being undone? Chapter 5: Melancholy as Medium brings us together for an activist wake that refuses to move on. The evening unfolds a ritual of mediumship to conduce our outraged grief as catalytic for the uprising and care work of living with more than one virus, amidst more than one pandemic, carrying our as yet unaddressed losses into the battles we’re still waging in the name of supports for the thriving of Black, Brown, Indigenous, crip, queer and trans vitalities.

The evening’s session features works by #fiercepussy, the What Would an HIV Doula Do? Collective, Prof. Jill Casid, Pamela Sneed, and Heather Lynn Johnson.
